2016 Comeback Trail: Benefitting the National Strokes AssociationComeback Trail: 5K Series for Stroke Awareness Month

When: Sunday May 1st, 2016

Where: Hudson Gardens, Littleton, CO 80120

Price for stroke survivors: $20

General public: $25

Stroke is the 5th leading cause of death in the US, yet millions who survive have had no unifying symbol around which to rally. In 2016, this is going to change. Stroke recovery is a unique journey for those individuals that were affected by a stroke, but also the family members of the victim. This is what the Comeback Trail is all about and is focused on: the physical, mental, and spiritual journey of recovery for stroke survivors and their loved ones.

The inaugural Comeback Trail 5K run/walk will kick off Sunday, May 1, at 8:30 a.m. at Hudson Gardens in Littleton. Registration opens at 7:30 a.m. Participants will make their way through the gardens and out on to the Mary Carter Greenway, as they symbolically celebrate stroke survivors making a comeback.

Comeback Trail 5K Series registration supports the Centennial, Colorado, – based National Stroke Association, the only US organization focused solely on reducing the incidence and impact of stroke through prevention, treatment and rehabilitation support for stroke survivors and caregivers. Registration is now open at comebacktrail.org.

Stroke Facts:

— Every 40 seconds, someone in the US has a stroke.

— Since the 1990s, strokes in young adults under the age of 45 have increased by more than 50 percent, yet 75 percent of young American adults are unaware of, or underestimate, the urgency of stroke symptoms which could mean the difference between recovery or permanent damage.

— More than 6 million stroke survivors live in the U.S. today, a number projected to increase to 10 million by 2030.

— Stroke kills twice as many women each year than breast cancer.
All of us at Colorado Nonprofit Insurance Agency in Denver, Colorado would like to invite you and your loved ones out to enjoy all of these local charity events this January! Together, we can come back strong!
